We had a wonderful time with the grandchildren. The Bear show will be one of the attractions the kids will never forget. The Chinese Acrobats had my grandson in awe- and the train ride and Wolfman was so much fun. The Peppermint Stick ice cream shoppe was the best part on the hot summer day we attended. I think it...

We have had season passes to Clark's Trading Post for the past 3 seasons. Great family entertainment at very reasonable prices. Having gotten to know the Clarks personally in that time, I will say that they are always looking to make sure that people get their money's worth when they come to visit.

I have brought each grandchild to Clarks so that I can relive memories of going there with my own children! We love the train ride and the WolfMan adds just enough drama to keep the kids excited! The Engineer is friendly and we always get great pictures! The Bear show is not just exciting but educates also. They loved the... More

What a great time!!! We go here year after year to see these amazing bears and to visit the gift shop to buy the best fudge on earth. Staff is always friendly and very eco conscious and amazing to these bears. Lots to do for the kids and adults alike. Makesure you take a train ride to see the wolfman!

Instead of going to the beach for a week for our annual August vacation we decided to do a week of day trips around New England. None of us had ever been to Clark's, and we figured its only 2 hours away, so off we went. My husband, our 7 yr old daughter & I had a great time! We... More

Forgot how great this place is to visit for a couple of hours. Brought the next generation of family there. This is not your typical circus type animal act. These bears are well cared for and treated like part of the family like any other pet. In some cases they are rescued from bad situations. Good family fun, I would... More

Hello! I'm not so sure this reviewer was really at Clark's Trading Post and the White Mountain Central Railroad. There are many "Trading Posts" all over the country. Clark's Trading Post is more than a store it is also an attraction. It sounds like they didn't make it into the park with the Bear Shows, Train rides, Segway's, Blaster Boats,... More

The Trading post has many activities well timed to occupy a family with small children. Everyone enjoyed it and came back to the hotel exhausted . Good value for the money

Stopped here on our first day in NH. Wasn't bad but the prices I thought were a little much based on what is offered. The train ride was fun but not a fan of rides that go back the same route in reverse. Bear show was good but other then that there wasn't a whole lot to keep my 9... More
